president obama to intervene in the syrian war. all that after last week, the white house said that basha bashar alasaad probably used chemical weapons, but they said it was a small amount. it does seem to contradict what president obama said earlier about a red line that the regime couldn't cross. >> i keep feeling i've seen this movie before in bosnia. and i really do liken syria to bosnia, not libya and all the other. bosnia. in bosnia, the united states did not want to accept there was an ethnic cleansing or genocide going on. all sides were equally guilty. it took a final massacre. it has been tried and they've been charged with genocide, the culprits. here, 70,000 casualties, two years later and the president laid down not just his red line, but the kper national communities red line. also, the president doesn't like it. it is a violation of the laws of war. it's a crime that the world has to deal with. i was interviewed and i have been doing this for weeks and months. and this week, we have had two eyewitnesss, basically, inside syria who have told us about what they saw abou

part right away. seriously, mr. president, your hair is so white it could be a member of your cabinet. >> tough line. that was conan o'brien as the white house correspondents' dinner taking a jab at president obama over his supposed lack of diversity in his cabinet. today, the president names the first african-american cabinet pick of his second term. he's chosen charlotte, north carolina, mayor anthony fox as his nominee to become the nation's next transportation secretary succeeding ray lahood. angela, a principal at the impact strategies group, angela, thanks very much for coming in. so what's your take on thissugg has not been diverse enough in his selections for his second term cabinet? >> well, wolf, i think as the president has mentioned in several other interviews, this is just the beginning. anthony foxx is certainly a great start in the right direction with his background serving as a mayor of a major metropolitan area and even serving as one of the primary reasons why the dratic national convention went so well i think it's certainly a step in the right direction. >> so you

get. piers? >> what is likely to be the white house reaction to what's happened here? >> reporter: well, nobody's talking about it publicly, you know, but president obama is literally getting asked about syria every day, and again today, with this racheting up of tensions, the president once again said you know, no prospect that he can see of putting u.s. ground troops into syria. but he's not ruling out any options. have a listen to what he had to say. >> if in fact we see strong evidence that we can present and that allows us to say that the syrian military and the syrian government is using chemical weapons, then that is a game changer for us. >> reporter: a game changer. no ground troops, but still keeping all the other options on the table, but it looks like the israelis have decided pretty much they're not waiting around. the israelis as you know have a very strong policy. what they are looking at striking is any weapons that they believe the syrians are going to try and get out of the country to keep safe, transfer to hezbollah across the border in lebanon, and in fact, we

how they are treated. president obama says the facility should be closed and that congress wouldn't let it happen. but he promised to revisit the issue. here is what the president said at the white house yesterday. >> i think it's critical for us to understand that guantanamo is not necessary to keep america safe. it is expensive. it is inefficient. it hurts us in terms of our international standing. it lessens cooperation with our allies on counter terrorism efforts. it is a recruitment tool for extremists, it needs to be closed. >> he also said that, of course, during his re-election campaign. and it hasn't happened so far. >> i'd like to see him make a more forceful case here. a little more lurid language. >> it's really bad, yesterday he said i don't want these individuals to die. to that end there are some 25 and counting prisoners on hunger strike who have been designated to be force fed. >> it's actually like 100. >> it is more than that, but 25 or so are being force fed. the way it was described to me, by lawyers and by medical experts, is that they are strapped down to a ch
